OCTOBER 11, 2018 Adrian Percy is the former head of R&D at Bayer, recently stepping down and becoming the company’s technology ambassador. Ahead of his speaking slot at World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit in London next week, we caught up with Percy to find out more about the role and his views on the development of the agritech startup market What technologies are really exciting at the moment? There’s three that I like to talk about and think about. The second area I guess I would loosely call biological approaches, so things like the microbiome but also alternatives to traditional chemistry in crop protection, whether they’d be very, very specialized biological products or more broad acting bacterial based products or fungal based products. Again, I think it’s really exciting and given the political and the regulatory situation in Europe, those types of approaches will be really welcomed onto the marketplace and we’ll have an important role moving forward.

Opinion: New Farm Bill Paves Way for Greener Crop Treatments 10/02/18 By Gregg Bogosian Ph.D. A new provision in the House of Representatives' draft of a new farm bill directs USDA to “ensure the expeditious and appropriate review, approval, uniform national labeling, and availability of plant biostimulant products to agricultural producers.” This very young ag biostimulant space is taking off. Companies, ranging from small start-ups to most of the world’s agricultural giants, have already invested more than $13 billion into birthing a biostimulant sector. The current farm bill draft language, if it makes its way into law, will help provide a stable policy environment for the industry to move ahead. Understanding the plant microbiome is the foundation of the rapidly emerging ag biologicals sector. Researchers now know that the vast majority of the microbes on and in a healthy plant provide beneficial enhancements to a plant’s normal functions. They stimulate the plant’s growth, suppress diseases, improve the ability of roots to take in nutrients from soil, strengthen plant structures and improve a plant's tolerance of drought, heat and pests. Harnessing the power of microbes, therefore, can and does dramatically impact modern agricultural practices. The House Agriculture Committee made a good first move in recognizing the importance of biostimulants. Now's the time for Congress to spur USDA on to set up the needed steps of review, approval, labeling and more so that these products can reach growers without tripping in red tape along the way. A friendly regulatory platform will help plant microbiome companies to truly make waves in U.S agriculture and beyond. Full story, Agri Pulse - https://tinyurl.com/Greener-Crop-Treatments

The following article (from a series) provides a very interesting read and confirms my view that there is huge potential from the "integration" of biological and conventional crop protection products. Identifying Uncontested Market Spaces (Blue Oceans) in the Global Crop Protection Industry (Part 3) September 28, 2018 By: Harry Teicher The traditional approach to generic crop protection product development has been to compete on prices and incrementally improve formulation and delivery technologies. This strategic profile is unlikely to create market-shaping innovations. Advances in Biological Crop Protection Provide Value Innovation Opportunities and Strategic Adaptations. In contrast, the nascent biopesticide industry staked out new utility propositions on the Grower Utility map, to generate a unique strategic profile. Over the last two decades, significant increases in our understanding of inducible plant defense responses (strongly driven by biopesticide R&D) provide us with new and powerful utility propositions to increase product efficacy, through the introduction of new modes of activity, and the integration of plant defense responses into overall crop protection strategies — an alliance between farmer and crop. To generate their unique strategic profile, the biopesticide industry altered their scoring on competitive factors through: * Elimination of competition on price (growers accept the increased cost of Biopesticides) * Reduction of competition on delivery (application of Biopesticides is more demanding than for conventional, chemical products) and efficacy (there is a perception of variable efficacy for Biopesticides) * Elevation above industry standards of competition on new modes of action, environmental and toxicological advantages as well as positive branding (image) … and generated “Blue Ocean” value innovation in an uncontested market space through: Creation of a new factor that the incumbent generic industry did not offer: the integration of plant defense responses into overall crop protection strategies. The biopesticide industry has subsequently demonstrated that significant strategic synergies can be achieved by integrating biological and conventional crop protection — not only between products but also between the knowledge bases for these strategies. In this next article of this series, we continue with Part II of how the Biopesticide & SMART-TECH Industries create a “Blue Ocean” of uncontested crop protection market space.

Written Q&A for the DirectorsTalk interview - http://bit.ly/2Dv3Q1j

The undisclosed partner for corn in the US has particularly piqued my interest, because during the interview the CEO states that there are four players that represent more than 80% of the agchemical market in the US and who have access to about a quarter of the 90 million acres of corn in the US "and it is one on them". Well, in my view that whittles is down to Bayer, Syngenta, DowDupont and BASF, either one represents a potentially very big deal for PHC. You will note from a quick search that only one of those four appears to have a "fluency agent"! But perhaps a new one will emerge? I wonder whether the recent settlement (further below) regarding patent litigation between Bayer and Exosect is in anyway related? And also allows Talc to launch a soybean seed treatment which retailers apply (mentioned in the interview)? Exosect and Bayer reach agreement in dust-up over patents in Canada 7th February 2018 UK Company Exosect Ltd. today announced that it has reached an end to its legal dispute in Canada and the U.S.A. A settlement agreement has now been reached with Bayer. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. This concludes a court action brought by Exosect in April 2015 relating to its patent (CA2861526), filed in Canada on April, 4th 2012 and granted on February 3rd, 2015. The patent for ‘improved seed flowability and methods of sowing seeds for dust drift reduction’ is included within Exosect’s rapidly expanding international portfolio, based on its proprietary technology platform, Entostat®. Following this agreement, Bayer will continue to sell its fluency product, whilst Exosect will progress with its program of IP out-licencing. Exosect licensee Talc U.S.A. and its product Effusion remain unaffected by the resolution of this action. As previously reported, Exosect and Talc U.S.A. entered into a non-exclusive licensing deal on March 14th, 2016. In addition to Exosect’s Canadian and US fluency agent patent, others coming to grant include South Africa and Ukraine. Applications are pending in Brazil and EU. Exosect’s Chief Executive Officer Andrew MacNaughton comments; “I am pleased that we have reached a mutually agreeable position in this dispute with Bayer. It is important that successful endeavours to produce novel formulations in crop protection, that benefit both mankind and the environment, are made available to farmers with the greatest expediency.” Further information about Exosect’s award winning Entostat formulation technology can be found on the company website. www.exosect.com Food for thought at least.

The interesting period continues! The following interview from yesterday provides some insightful elements regarding growth prospects, including growth in Brazil with another and additional distributor for Soybeans and Sugar Cane, and an upcoming launch into soybeans in the US. The partner for corn remains (undisclosed) who has circa 25% market share. Well worth listening to - https://tinyurl.com/Interview-Plant-Health-Care

PHC's existing products and indeed their new technology, PREtec, ultimately has effects on the plant hormones which in turn activate the plants innate growth and defense mechanisms. Such products look set to play an increasingly important part in agriculture. Keeping the launch into corn seed treatment in mind, the following provides a very interesting read - 17th September 2018 Higher corn yields on the way Plant growth regulators are opening the door to unheard of yields The more costly fermentation processes of the past also put the use of PGRs on a slower trajectory than Bt corn or variable-rate planting. Plus it’s also taken roughly 70 years for growers to adopt the huge array of technologies that they’ve been asked to put to work on their farms, with everything from hybrids and fertilizers to weed control and biotechnology In a sense, however, the ground is now ready for the plant growth regulator’s “seed” to be planted.

Exemplifies what is behind the momentum for biologicals - Punjab plans to cut pesticides use in basmati rice By Prashant Krar, ET Bureau|Aug 30, 2018, Basmati grown in Punjab this year is likely to witness a major reduction in use of pesticides and fungicides that lead to rejection of export consignments from India. Alarmed by hurdles in export of rice from India, the state government is reaching out to farmers through Gurugwaras, public meetings and social media to dissuade use of Acephate, Cabandazim, Thiamethoxam, Tricyclazole and Triazophos—chemicals responsible for higher residue level in rice. “There will be significant decline in use of hazardous chemicals in rice this year that cause hurdles in exports,” KS Pannu, Commissioner Food and Drug Administration Punjab told ET.

With more states enacting medicinal and adult recreational cannabis laws each year, health officials have increasingly warned about the potential hazards of products made from crops treated with certain chemicals. In particular, chemical pesticides have been identified as a threat to cannabis consumers' health, with potential risks that can vary depending on whether products are eaten, smoked, vaped, or topically applied.

I note the following new product launch from a highly respected distributor for PHC's Harpin aB, interestingly it also uses the following description "contains an elicitor that stimulates gene expression in plants, delivering improved abiotic stress tolerance and better plant growth. Elicitors are known to activate a variety of biosynthetic pathways within the plant" - New E2 Pro Elicitor from Sherriff Amenity Sherriff Amenity has announced the launch of E2 Pro Elicitor - a new unique soluble plant biostimulant which contains Harpin aβ. E2 Pro from Sherriff Amenity is a brand of turf care products which is viewed as being synonymous with quality, and the ever expanding portfolio features a range of both high performing water soluble and liquid fertilisers. There are currently five different analyses within the water soluble range and eight in the liquid portfolio, ensuring that there is a solution to suit a wide range of nutrient requirements throughout the year. Elicitor is the latest product to be welcomed to the E2 Pro family and by all accounts it appears that turf managers will be more than pleased with addition. https://tinyurl.com/E2-Pro-Elicitor-Launch Key Benefits • Increased photosynthesis • Increased nutrient uptake • Increased root development • Improved tolerance to abiotic stress • Increased growth https://tinyurl.com/E2-Pro-Elicitor-Details

Today's update is welcome news, and the yield results, which are excellent, will surely pique further interest. Regarding the prospects for Harpin in coffee, Brazil was ranked first among the leading coffee-producing countries worldwide in 2017. Coffee is of course grown elsewhere, so the potential market is very large. It will also be very interesting see what other crops can benefit from the application of Harpin !
